is continuing to improve. europe seems to be stabilizing, and energy prices are steady. big companies at home and abroad are flush with cash, and looking for reasons to invest. on the negative side, the recent tax increases resulting from the fiscal cliff deal will hit successful small businesses hard, which will dampen growth and hurt job creation in the first part of the year. elicited by the chamber's latest survey of small business members, which you should have at your place, there is significant uncertainty over health care regulations, taxes and deficits. last week's job report was mediocre. only 63% of our eligible workforce is even participating, and we don't see much improvement in unemployment throughout the year. so while our economy may be growing, it is a fragile growth, and not nearly strong enough to create the jobs americans need, or to expand their income. and now we face a series of new washington deadlines over deficits, spending, debt ceiling, sequestration, and a continuing resolution to keep the government running. we also faced other domestic and international uncertai

. there will likely be no large-scale initiative on tax reform, entitlement reform, energy policy, probably even immigration reform and this is the real worry. because beyond the self-inflicted crisis of the cliff and the forthcoming debt ceiling, the united states faces a much deeper challenge. for more than a decade now, for many decades by some measures, america's growth rates have slowed. recoveries have been jobless. and median wages have declined. some combination of the information revolution and globalization has placed tough pressures on high-wage countries like the united states. these new forces of technology and globalization are accelerating and without a strategy to revive growth, long-term growth, all our problems get worse, including and especially our debt. washington's focus so far has been on raising taxes and cutting spending. it should really be on reforming and investing in the american economy. historically when the american government or the world bank or the imf advised countries that got into trouble, they usually stress that achieving fiscal stability, austerity was on
